Arietid meteor results

Been setting up and "tweaking" the new meteor detection and recording system. Previously I had to manually scan through around 90 screenshots per hour of operation to check for meteors and then add the numbers to Google Sheets to produce graphical results. I'm now using the "Echoes&qu...

Re: Eclipse through cloud

Love the shots, Alexandra.
You suffered the same cloud issues as we did here in Mid Wales. Grabbed a few shots through cloud around 11.00 UT, these being the best we could get.

Re: Radio Detected Ursids

Stu, In relation to the length of duration of the Ursid captures I posted, these were certainly the longest and most visually interesting ones. Most Ursids seemed "normal" 1-2 second pings overall, but to be honest, this was the first time I'd had the set up recording this shower as I'd al...

Re: Conjunction 20th December

Managed a snap through the 120mm refractor during an unexpected lull in the clouds.
Nothing special about the photo, but as you say Mark...... once in 800 years has gotta be worth the effort!

Re: Radio Detected Geminids December 2020-UPDATED (2)

I'll throw my 5 nights of Geminids into the mix for what they're worth.
I was afraid I'd just missed the max when I powered up for the 13th to 14th session, but looking at Stu's graphics, think I got lucky and just caught it.
Regards to all,

Mini peak on the 16th around 0500-06.00 GMT then a general rise in pings on the 17th from 02.00-04.00 GMT and an "interesting" peak at 08.00-09.00 GMT on the 17th.
